Amplifon’s History Began in the Early 50

Global leader in hearing solutions

Our true successes are the millions of people who have had their quality of life improved by what we do, and the way we do it.

In the 1940s the development of the transistor revolutionised electronics, bringing us the transistor radio and the first electronic hearing aids.

Among the pioneers in this new development was Englishman Algernon Charles Holland, who founded Amplifon in Milan, Italy in 1950 to distribute and fit hearing aids throughout the region.

The company grew quickly and between 1950 and 1970 helped many thousands of people with hearing loss to improve their hearing and reconnect with the world around them.

Always at the forefront of technical innovation and customer care, in 1971 Amplifon established the Centre for Research and Studies (CRS). The Centre is a not-for-profit foundation to support scientific and clinical research programmes into hearing loss. To this day, the Centre provides services to ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) specialists, GPs, paediatricians, neurologists and hearing aid specialists worldwide.

By the 1990s we'd helped millions of people with hearing loss and become a widely trusted name.

Meanwhile, the development of the microchip meant that hearing aids could be made smaller and less obtrusive, with more scope to fine tune and personalise them for individual needs. In 1996, Amplifon began fitting the first fully digital hearing aids.
